Airport ground-transportation operator The GO Group has launched a new web-based application that allows travelers to book a GO airport shuttle from their iPhones.

The app is designed also to work with Apple’s web-enabled iPod Touch and the iPad, due to be available for retail sale from April 3.


“Frequent travelers, in particular, will appreciate the ability to book ground transportation quickly from any location on their mobile device,” says John McCarthy, president of The GO Group, which is comprised of 28 ground transportation companies, serving 52 airports in the United States, Canada and Europe.

To make a reservation, the iPhone user accesses the GO website www.goairportshuttle.com, and clicks on the iPhone icon on the home page to reach a special reservation page. By bookmarking the site and clicking the “add to home screen” option, an icon will appear on the phone’s home screen to expedite future bookings.

The mobile application was developed by The Hudson Group, a reservation-systems technology company based in Lawrence, Massachusetts.

The GO Group, LLC, launched in August 2007 as a convenient, one-stop source for door-to-door airport shuttle services, serves 13 million passengers a year.

People who don’t have iPhones can book ground transportation to and from both departure and destination airports through GO’s website or toll free at 1-877-544-4646.
